To be completely honest, when it comes to weekend plans or dates, there really isn’t much to do besides eating, catching a movie or window shopping – most of which require money! That’s why any events that take place during the weekends are often sought after, especially those that come with free admission. Woohoo!

Well, if you’re looking for fun and adventure this weekend (and free admission), make sure you check out Iskarnival Main-Main 2018!

This two-day festival will showcase immersive experiences, imaginative performances, inspirational exhibitions, hands-on learning opportunities as well as diverse entertainment options for your family and friends!

In fact, this Carnival has been going on for a few years now and last year’s Iskarnival Kool actually managed to attract as many as 65,030 people! 

If you’re wondering why this event is such a big hit, read on and find out more!

One of the very best circuses known for its artistry and athleticism that hails all the way from Russia is finally here! And you don’t have to worry about it being stuffy because the entire performance will be held under a 2,700 seater, fully air-conditioned circus tent. That makes it the largest circus tent in Malaysia!

What to expect:

  • A two-hour programme featuring almost 40 performers
  • Visually stunning parades of the entire cast
  • Dangerous and thrilling acts by aerialists, high wire walkers, trapeze artists, acrobats and more!
